Short biography
Hana Volavkova, an art historian, was the only curator at the Central Jewish Museum in Prague who survived World War II. She had assisted in the mounting of an exhibition in 1943 on the history of the Jews of Bohemia and Moravia and another exhibition about the Jews of Prague in 1944. During the the post-war chaos, she helped save the Museum, and became its Director in 1950. It became a storehouse for over 200,000 objects, books, and archival material from all over Central Europe. She wrote several major books about the synagogues of Czechoslovakia. She also edited I Never Saw Another Butterfly: Children’s Drawings and Poems from Terezin Concentration Camp, 1942-1944. The collection was selected from the archives of the Museum.
